CEREBRO® helps teachers jumpstart online teaching with the least preparation possible, allowing them to save up to 400 hours per year through ready-made digital contents on a managed cloud platform as a solution for reducing faculty workload and improving the quality of online teaching.
It completed the Ideaspace Acceleration Program in 2020, and was recognized among the Top 20 RESQUE Startups vs. COVID-19 of QBO Innovation Hub.
According to the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), the excessive workload of teachers has a significant effect on the quality of education they deliver, leading the Philippines to rank 79th out of the 79 countries who took the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) in the year 2018. In July 2021, the World Bank reported that at least 80% of Filipino students fall below the required proficiency levels for their age, and this is very alarming.
While technology is seen as a solution to improve student learning and faculty workload, most EdTech solutions available in the market are focused on the platform used for fully-online or blended learning, but there is a great scarcity of curriculum-based materials that teachers can use for their online classes. As a result, teachers tend to not to utilize these at all to skip additional preparation time.
As a solution, CEREBRO® employs its pool of instructional designers to develop digital teaching materials that are aligned with the Department of Education’s Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELC) and the Commission on Higher Education’s New General Education Curriculum (NGEC). In addition, CEREBRO® also manages its clients’ learning management systems (LMS) so schools can worry less about maintaining their own IT team or tech infrastructure and focus more on pedagogy.
